How to be a soul-winner –

Introduction:

The following is a presentation that I have used for many years with good success. Early in my pastoral ministry, I decided to use this presentation and found it to be simple, to-the-point, and thorough. As I have presented it to the prospective converts, I had the privilege, in one year, of leading 34 people to know Jesus as their personal Savior and, as you allow the Holy Spirit to work through you, I am sure that you, too, will be fruitful at winning souls.

I must give special thanks to the Child Evangelism Fellowship for the basic idea. They came up with a great tool which I have modified somewhat to fit my style of soul-winning. Even though I have “tailored” the plan, I have tried to be faithful to their basic concept.

When you use the scripture (which is of great importance) you will want to quote the verses accurately and from memory. **ALWAYS USE THE WORD OF GOD!!** God honors His word.

The Presentation:

Make a ribbon card: The colors can be ribbons ⅜” x 1½” pasted onto a 3” x 5” card or onto a page in a date/diary book. This is optional, but the colors are essential. It might also be the “Wordless Book” booklet which can be purchased from the Child Evangelism Fellowship or a Christian book store.

Exchange:

After meeting your “Prospect”, try to get to know them a little bit. Make them feel comfortable with you.

You: “Have you ever seen little colored ribbons (or a little booklet without words) that tell you how to get to God’s Heaven”?

When they express a question about how this can be possible, turn to the GOLD colored page and begin as follows:

You – “God has a wonderful plan for your life and it involves us being with Him in His heaven. The gold page speaks of the streets of heaven. The Bible tells us they are pure gold like transparent glass (Rev. 21:21). There is no crime, hospitals or bad things in heaven – everything is perfect (Rev. 21:27). He wants us to be there with Him, but something is preventing us from going there, and that is sin”.

Open the book to the BLACK page and point to the color.

 “The Bible tells us that we are all sinners (Rom. 3:23). Are you a sinner, too, like everyone else in the world”?

Prospect – response

You: “Since there is no sin in heaven, God cannot allow us into His heaven. Sin will reap the wages of death. The Bible tells us that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). It also tells us that there is not a just man upon the earth that doeth good and sinneth not (Eccl. 7:20). That is a pretty bad picture so far, isn’t it”?

Prospectresponse

You – “Even though we are sinners, God still loves us and sent His Son, The Lord Jesus Christ to prove that love to us”.

Open the book to the RED page and point to the color.

 “The RED stands for His blood. He went all the way to the cross of Calvary to shed His blood so He can forgive our sin penalty (John 3:16, Rom. 5:8). That was a huge price to pay, but God did it all for you… so you can be with Him in Heaven”.

“We can know all this and still be lost and go where Satan will be: in Hell. God is not willing that any should perish in Hell, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

“Let me illustrate this…”

Have a little card handy with the words written on it that say “eternal life and Sins Forgiven”. Have another foldable object handy that the card will fit into (tract, paper, Bible, etc.).

“Let’s put this little card, that represents “eternal life” and “your sins forgiven” into this book (or whatever foldable object you have and you say)… Now, I have it in my right hand and I want to offer it to my left hand. ‘My left hand, would you like to have eternal life and your sins forgiven’? Left hand says, ‘Sure, I would.’

Then extend your right hand with the book in it to your left hand. Then ask the left hand:

“’Do you have it now’? It answers, ‘NO, it is still in your right hand’.”

 Go ahead and follow through and take it. Your left hand takes it, then ask:

“’What did you have to do to get the book which stands for Jesus Christ and eternal life? Did you have to work for it or join something’? The left hand answers, ‘No, I didn’t have to do anything but take it’.”

Turning to the person, ask them, as you hold the booklet/tract out to them:

You: “Do you have this little book in your right hand”?

Prospect: “No”

You: “How would you get it”?

Prospect: “I would have to take it”.

You: “You are exactly right. You see how simple God has made it for us (John 1:12)? Would you like to have God’s free gift of eternal life and have your sins forgiven”?

Prospect: “Yes”.

You: “Alright, I will help you. I will lead us in a prayer and after I pray, you can invite Jesus to be your Savior. It will go something like Wedding Vows; I will pray phrase by phrase and you can then repeat after me. If you are serious, and realize that you are a sinner, lost and on your way to Hell, then take my right hand.

I hold out my right hand to the Prospect and clasp his/her hand. I lead in prayer, something like this:

“Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Jesus to pay the full price for my sins by dying on the cross for my sin, He was buried and rose again so that I can be forgiven and saved. I thank you for that. (Prospect’s name here) has said that he/she wants, right now, to trust Jesus, by faith, as his/her personal Savior”.

When you are finished, you say:

“Now repeat after me in prayer: Dear Lord Jesus”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “Dear Lord Jesus”,

You: “I know that I am a sinner”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “I know that I am a sinner”,

You: “And that You died for my sins”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “And that You died for my sins”,

You: “And right now”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “And right now”,

You: “I trust you and receive You, Jesus”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “I trust you and receive You, Jesus“,

You: “to be my Savior”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “to be my Savior“

You: “and give me that new eternal life”.

Prospect: (Repeat) “and give me that new eternal life”.

You: “Thank you for saving me”,

Prospect: (Repeat) “Thank you for saving me”,

You: “and giving to me that new life”.

Prospect: (Repeat) “and giving to me that new life”.

You: “Help me to live for You and obey you”.

Prospect: (Repeat) “Help me to live for You and obey you”.

You: “I thank you in Jesus’ dear Name, Amen”.

Prospect: (Repeat) “I thank you in Jesus’ dear Name, Amen”.

After they finish praying, ask them:

You: “Did Jesus do as He promised and save you and come into your life? Did He give you that new eternal life (2 Cor. 5:17)”?

Prospect/New Christian: **Response**

You: “Praise The Lord”!

The WHITE color comes into the picture!

You: “The white speaks of forgiveness and cleansing. That is what we have in Jesus”.

Give them assurance verses such as: John 3:16-18; John 3:36; John 5:24; John 10:28; Rom. 10:9-13, I John 5: 10-13

 God the Holy Spirit has sealed us forever: Eph. 1:13; 4:30

 The Holy Spirit is now our guide and teacher. John 14:1-16:13

Display the GREEN cover/page.

You: “The GREEN color speaks of growth. The grass, trees and flowers are green and are growing. We begin as babes in God’s family. God wants us to grow and mature. How do we do that? We read God’s Word;(1 Peter 2:2) this is our food. We should gather with God’s people for fellowship, teaching in the Bible, and encouragement – going to a good Bible believing, Bible preaching/teaching church.

“We should follow the Lord in believer’s baptism (by immersion).

“We can now tell others about your “New-Found Friend” (Jesus) and pray to the Heavenly Father in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus Christ”.

I trust this pattern will be of assistance as a tool for your soul-winning.

Yours for many to be saved… Bob Davis
